Standard design.


Please check F1 Help of Bank Subaccount field:

"When the following conditions are met, the Bank Subaccount field for a bank account is grayed out and cannot be specified because its value is derived automatically.

• The bank subaccount is linked to a bank reconciliation account in the Manage G/L Account Master Data app.

• The payment method is activated for payment processing on the basis of the bank reconciliation account.

Do the following:
a) Assign a bank subaccount to an account symbol. An account symbol is a key for grouping accounts from different charts of accounts. You can use an account symbol to link a bank subaccount to a payment method.

b) Assign account symbol to payment method."


Configuration steps:

In Configuration Activity 101024 'Make Global Settings for Electronic Bank Statement' assign bank subaccount to an account symbol.

In Configuration Activity 103557 'Assign Account Symbol to Payment Methods' assign payment method to account symbol and country/region key.


If you want to return to the classical bank account configuration method, you can reset your previous configuration.

Note: This is not valid for the “Bill of Exchange” payment method. If your payment method classification is “Bill of Exchange”, you must continue to maintain your bank subaccount manually.
